Businesses like car washes and truck garages use trenches or pits to collect the debris that falls from vehicles. It is important to maintain them to ensure a smooth running system that does its job right.

How Does the Trench or Pit Work?

Trenches or pits run through the center of a car wash or truck garage. Here’s the process in four simple steps:

  1. When a car is washed, the wastewater flows down into the trench.
  2. The trench allows water to flow to the oil-water separator, while collecting and holding debris like mud, gravel, and grit to prevent it from moving forward.
  3. As the sludge collects overtime, it needs to be removed or clogs may cause backups.
  4. While some businesses remove the sludge with shovels, there are better methods to cleaning and clearing the trench or pit.
